DAY 5 of the 10 Day Meal Prep Challenge For Intermittent Fasting Divas!

WELCOME TO DAY 5 DIVAS
You’re Almost there SIS!
“Time To Put Your Prep Where Your Plans Are


Okay diva sister friend. Today is the day we put aside to prep the meals we planned!  But let’s recap the process (which we repeat every week as a matter of our new healthy habits routines sis).

  1. Review our week and identify the days we are booked, busy and bothered with meetings, events, and happy hours

  2. We plan our meals around what we have going on in our lives, and make a grocery list.

  3. We plan the day to grocery shop, and subsequently the day to cook.

Following these steps lands you where we are now in the process sis. We are ready to cook, BUT NOT SO FAST!! First we must decide what kind of Meal Prepper are you??  Now for me this changes week to week depending on my schedule, and should feel empowered to switch it up as needed, in the same way!  Let me explain sis!


The Various ways to Meal Prep


When divas think of meal prep they think of hours in the kitchen, but if that doesn’t work for you, you have many other options…


 

🥘 Fresh to Def Diva Prep 🥘

You know the meals you want to eat during the week. You buy the groceries, cut your veggies and season your proteins but you don’t cook. You like all of your meals fresh! You prep twice a week because uncooked protein lasts 2-3 days tops uncooked in the fridge. You don’t like eating reheated meals so you cook daily from your prepped protein carbs and fats. This divas prep consists merely of making a meal plan, buying her groceries, then cutting up veggies and seasoning meats having them ready to cook when she’s ready! #freshtoDEF


🥘 Go with the Flow Diva Prep🥘

AKA Buffet meal prep. You’re not sure of the exact meals you want to eat, so you cook a buffet style of egg, oatmeal, chicken, beef and fish with your fav sides and fruits. Each day you grab and go by combining one serving of protein, carb and fat combo. You basically eat what you’re feeling like eating that day! You don’t like having the same meals daily. You mix and match. This has a fridge of containers that only includes many servings of one food per container. She goes with the flow of what she feels like she wants to eat day to day #flowonDIVA


 

🥘 Drive-Thru Prep 🥘

It’s an extension of the Fresh to Def Diva Prep. You know your exact meals, you prep the ingredients for your exact meals then you cook then finally you add your complete meals to your meal prep containers. You grab and go each meal along the day, as if your kitchen or your lunch bag is your own personal drive thru.  You don’t have to eat the same thing all week. But don’t get it twisted, you can prep twice a week and change your meals for the second 1/2 of the week. #drivethruDIVA


🥘 One and Done Diva Prep🥘

You don’t like planning, prepping or cooking but you know the value of meal prepping so you pick one meal and plan and prep it only each day. For example so divas prep their breakfast only for a few days but nothing else. You may new to meal prep and want to start somewhere!  You may be on a budget and can only afford to plan out one meal a day. #1andDONEDiva

 

You can be any of the meal preppers above and have different timings too!


⏰ The timing of it all… ⏰

Some ladies like to prep once a week.

Some ladies like to prep twice a week.

Some ladies prep every day.

Which one you are depends on your preference, your personality, your patience, your job, your lifestyle, your finances.

🤷🏾‍♀️Sooooo sis, what kind of meal prepper are you?

🙋🏾‍♀️I’ll start! I’m a Go With The Flow Diva Prepper who likes to prep twice a week, because I change meal choices for the second half of the week, because I don’t like reheating food greater than 3-4 days old. I re-up mid week.


Meal Prepping doesn't have to take hours in the kitchen; nor, does it mean eating the same darn meal day after day. We make planning our meals work for our schedule and our eating preferences! Click To Tweet


DIVA ASSIGNMENT:

1. Share with me in the comments below the kind of Meal Prepper you are most weeks by filling in the blanks below

I’m a ______________ Meal Prepper  who likes to prep _____ a week, because_____________________.

Remember you can change and adapt based on what’s going on in your life any given week. The goal is to be flexible and not think if you don’t have time to meal prep every last meal in those pretty containers then you aren’t going to eat healthy or meal prep at all.  Don’t be like that sis.  Make sure you check your stinking thinking, and make meal prep happen in some way form or fashion every week. It is not an ALL OR NOTHING relationship with this healthy habit. We can live in the gray! Why? ‘Cause a sistah has health goals, and will make them happen by ANY MEANS, even if I’m short on time! You feel me diva?

    I was one who was addicted to the scale. I use to weigh myself everyday until I found that I was shredding inches and toning up, even though the number on the scale didn’t chart my progress as fast. In my mind, if I am doing the work, the numbers should show my progress and this is what had my obsession for and with the scale,

    I have a body scan scale that measures body fat, visceral fat, etc that I use once a week. I weigh myself the same time each week. I chose to stop the obsession because I was unhappy with the daily numbers.

    • Tameko says:

      I don’t have an unhealthy relationship with the scale because until recently I’ve never owned one. I needed it for a challenge to do weekly weights, but don’t use it regularly now.

    • Ro says:

      Hey Freida. We miss you.

      • TRINITY N HOLLINS says:

        I’m a go with the flow, drive thru diva prepper. I like to prep twice a week for I don’t like eating the same thing after 2 or 3 days or reheating it.

  • Tamara Jennings says:

    I do not have a bad relationship with the scale. I tend to weigh about once or twice per week. I do notice fluctuations as mentioned in the message. When I weigh, I look for overall consistency. As long as I am within 3-5 pounds of my “normal” weight, I’ve been alright. At this point in my life, my “normal” weight is much higher than I would like it to be thus why I joined the 30 day challenge.

  • Sonia Hart says:

    I had an unhealthy relationship with the scale, but now I focus on NSW (Non Scale Wins); how my clothes fit, body measurements and the like. I am learning to be happy with me and being healthy.

  • Bernadette Davis “Epiphany” says:

    I don’t have a bad relationship with the scale because he broke my heart decades ago so I don’t trust him like that anymore. However, in the last two month he came back to show himself as if he’s faithful now. Yeah RIGHT! For about two weeks we where good but things got a little rocky in our relationship after that.
    See, he thought I forgot how he played me decades ago and danced all on my emotions. Yelp he sure DID!

    See, Mr. Brother Man “The scale” from aisle 11 in Walmart! Yeah Him. (Divas, watch out because he has brothers just like him. They all get it from their father “The Meat Scale”. None of them can be trusted.)

    Divas look! He thought I forgot. Nawl Nawl! Nawl! Lover boy! I DID NOT! So when he thought I was going to get all emotionally out of wack because he change on me again, I simply said, “No, Brother Man! You do not get to define me anymore! My success is not built on what you say! I know my progress because the cloths that use to hug me so tightly, has now loosen their grip! Yeah! I bet you didn’t know that”? So now Slide over because you are not in control! I get to decide when I want to see you again! And whenever I do decide, I still get to decide if I even want to listen to you because I know your uneven ways. Your words cannot be trusted!

    So, Good day Mr. Brother Man “The Scale”

  • Denise Harrison says:

    I do not have an unhealthy relationship with the scale. I weigh myself occasionally and when starting a new regimen. I gauge my weight by how my clothes fit and how I look in my clothes.

    Being addicted to the scale is a form of mental abuse and it can really affect your confidence and self-esteem. When you start losing inches, the scale takes a while to capture that lost in lbs. You can physically see inches lost in your face, neck, how your clothes fit way before the numbers on the scale catch up.

    Stay off the scale, drop those inches, eat healthy, move your body and watch your body transform with letting the scale drive your determination of success.

  • Latoya says:

    No unhealthy relationship with the scale. Everything Coach Twy mentioned above is so true. In the past I ignored the scale and all of that. Now taking before and after pics and measurements is my focus. I will weigh myself but that is every so often. Enjoy the scale but don’t obsess over it… it don’t know everything, LBVS! Begin to know your body… I know when it’s rime to cut back but gut tells me and I now listen

  • British says:

    I do have an unhealthy relationship with the scale. I am a numbers person! The sad part is: the number either motivates me or makes me say “forget it”! i need to reset the terms of this relationship. I don’t have the $$$ for the recommended scale, but I’m going to find some clothes to use as a guide. I don’t trust measuring myself, it’s too hard to do the same way every time.

  • Melita Mitchell says:

    The pictures really tell the story! I have learned to. Ot rely on the scale but to monitor my pics for change. I would look at the scale being stagnant and in the mirror and not see a thing. But compare the week one pic to the current and WOW!

  • Anya says:

    I often weigh morning and night on a daily basis. I don’t necessarily thing that’s unhealthy but some may beg to differ. I only track the weight once a week but it helps me to know how I fluctuate through the week.

  • Marlene says:

    I do get on the scale probably more than i should but also know its not always a good way to measure progress. Going to wrk at doing what needs to ve done and not be a slave to the scale .

  • Valerie McKenzey says:

    I dropped my bad relationship with the scale awhile ago. What I notice from the scale is that my weight fluctuates by 3 – 5 pounds for various reasons. I rely more on how I feel, how my clothes fit and how I look in my clothes. I stopped thinking I was going to have a Victory Secret model’s body and I am learning to love my body and focus more on my health and the weight and inch reduction falls in place.

  • Rochelle says:

    I used to have an unhealthy relationship with the scale however when I started losinig inches and the scale did not reflect what I saw and how my clothes fit, I did not care as much what it said. I had weight goals initially, but now I have health goals. Funny my goal is to weight my 5-6 inch heels againg without feeling like my feet are carrying my WHOLE body! We have got this Sis!!!

  • Valerie McKenzey says:

    My meal prep style varies based on what I have going on during the week or just on my mood. This week I’m a “Go With the Flow Meal Prepper” who likes to prep twice a week, because I get bored eating the same food for an entire week.

  • Denise Harrison says:

    I’m a Drive-Thru Meal Prepper who likes to prep twice a week, because I do not like to reheat food after 3-4 days and to switch up what I am eating to avoid getting bored.

  • Lisa says:

    I’m a 1 and done Meal Prepper who likes to prep daily during week, because after I go to the store I change yo what I want from day to day due to being a picky eater, but I’ve been juicing a lot and eating mainly veggies.

    • Lisa says:

      Correction for typos on previous submission. LOL

      Hi everybody, ,
      I’m a 1 and done Meal Prepper who likes to prep daily during the week. I’ve found that I often change what I want to eat due to being a picky eater, even if I try to meal prep for the week. I’ve been juicing a lot and eating mainly veggies.

  • Latoy says:

    I am a fresh to def and go with the flow mainly go with the flow. I’m glad you put these types out there cause I see pretty pictures of all food in containers ready and I don’t quite work that way. I’m truly finding my niche though and my fridge and cabinets are stocked with the right foods now so that I don’t choose an unhealthy option when I failed to prep something and just make it in the moment.

  • Natasha Shank says:

    I’m a #drivethrudiva Meal Prepper who likes to prep once or twice a week, because it’s easy for me to maintain. Twice a week prepping prevents me from getting lazy at the end of the day and gives me something to look forward to because I love to cook.

    • Tamara says:

      I’m a go with the flow AKA buffet style prep diva who likes to prep twice a week because I don’t want to waste food and money.

  • Laverne White says:

  • Melita Mitchell says:

    I am a #drivethruDIVA who likes to prep twice a week because I have greedy people in my house that eat all the portions so I have to make sure there is a enough food and variety available.

    • Tameko says:

      I’m a mix of fresh to def and drive thru prep diva who likes to prep about twice a week because I have to have fresh eggs and fish! My other proteins can be reheated, but because I usually work 3-4 12 hour shifts, meals for work days need to be ready to roll.

  • Sonia Hart says:

    I am a drive thru prepper who preps twice a week because I want some variety in my meals. Prep days are Sunday & Wednesday.

  • Tynica Robert-McMillan says:

    I’m a fresh to def Diva, I will meal prep 2-3 times a week bc it’s the summer and I have extra time on my hands to eat fresh cooked meats and vegetables.

  • Tyna Price says:

    I’m a fresh to def diva or sometimes a go with the flow. I only have to cool for me so I’ve mastered making small quanties. In the summer I have more time and enjoy fresh veggies that don’t necessarily require cooking – lots of salads, especially when there days really hot

  • Ro says:

    I am Fresh and Def most weeks but can go with the flow at times. If that’s the case I prep twice a week. I don’t love left overs and wake up with a new mindset but I’ll play it by ear.

  • Vickie says:

    I’m a Fresh to Def Dive Meal Prepper who likes to prep some things daily because everything doesn’t always reheat that well (once) a week, because I may change my mind on what I want to eat. My mood or taste buds might dictate something different to eat.

    Sorry I didn’t post yesterday.

  • I’m a Drive Thru Diva Meal Prepper who likes to prep 1-2x a week, because I like variety.

    • Cristal says:

  • wennifer cameron says:

    I’m a mix of a Go with the Flow and Drive thru meal prep Diva, because with a family that consists of 7 people you have to learn to do just that . I meal prep twice a week usually changing proteins and breakfasts. By doing this it alleviates the anxiety I felt in the past when someone would eat my prepped meals. I no longer freak out. I know that there are healthy alternatives that I can whip up easily when needed.
